Hello lovelies, today I want to share with you a favorite event of mine, FORM: Art + Floral, which bridges the gap between two artistic fields. FORM brings artists and florists together. In its 5th annual exhibition, In/Organic, this one-night event paired the talents of eight artists and eight florists in dialogue. This was our third year contributing!
The event was held on Tuesday, April 5 at Greenhouse Loft. Drawing on Greenhouse Loft’s environmentally-conscious mission, artists provided work that focused on perceptions of space, urban landscapes, and ecological themes to be reinterpreted in new and creative floral arrangements. In addition, Feast and Imbibe created fabulously delicious food art and Elysia Root Cakes showed off their magnificent cake artistry to make it a very well rounded event.
FORM partners up with the non-for-profit organization Snow City Arts in order to raise money for the education of arts to children who are hospitalized in the Chicagoland area. There were roughly 140 people in attendance and in 3 short hours, we were able to raise over $3500! We are so honored to be a small part such a fun and charitable event!

I was actually approached to do FORM a little out of sequence. My artist, Caesar Perez, was to create an artistic impression of my floral art so I wanted to really translate that in a way that showed our reverse roles. I created a canvas which displayed real florals created by me emerging from it. Then my artist went to work during the event and created his impression of my art. Super cool right? It was so much fun to see how this came together!
Ed and Aileen Photography did an amazing job (as usual!) capturing this fun event.
